In this post, we are going to talk about a strange large rock that has been discovered by our fellow treasure hunter in this community. The strange part about it is the other rock that is on top of it which seems like a cover.

So the questions that we are going to answer in this post are,

“Is this rock a Yamashita treasure marker?”


“Could there be a treasure deposit inside this large rock?”

Below is the actual photo of the large rock discovered by our fellow treasure hunter.

As we can see, the rock is actually a large boulder of rock. Perhaps we can make an estimated size of this boulder of rock inside our imagination by using the size of our fellow treasure hunter included in this photo. In my own imagination, I can say that this boulder of rock has a diameter of around 10 to 15 feet.

But it’s not really the size of this large rock that caught our attention but the rock here on its top portion.

As we can see, I can say that this rock on top is not a part of the huge large rock. They slightly differ on the features of their surfaces where I can say that the large rock is pretty much older in age as compared to the rock on its top. So my opinion is that the Japanese Imperial soldiers probably placed this rock on top as a marker.

I analyzed the surfaces of the rock here on top for any possible engraved markers. However, I could not identify any possible legit markings.

Anyway, the way this rock is placed on the top of this very large rock is already good enough to draw our attention. Just like what I previously stated, the Japanese Imperial soldiers probably placed it on top of this very large rock for a certain purpose.

The way I see it, it’s purpose is like a “cover”. In this large rock, there could be a hollow or hole inside this portion and this rock on top serves as a cover.

Based on my experiences as a treasure hunter, some of our rock enclosed treasure deposit recoveries are similar to this kind of situation. The large rock where the Japanese Imperial soldiers hid their treasures had an obvious cover they intentionally placed. Aside from rocks is that they also used concrete.

Going back into this photo, we can see here that our fellow treasure hunter is trying to break this suspected cover. He needs to keep going and break it apart because this is the only possible way to clear our doubts about this rock.

If he successfully broke this rock and we are correct with our speculation, then he gets the reward stored inside this large rock. But on the hand where he broke this rock and discovered nothing under, at least our suspicion has been cleared out and we can move into the next suspected spot.

Moreover, treasure deposits inside large rocks range from small to medium volume. Based on the size of this rock, it is possible that a medium volume of treasure deposit can fit inside.

As for traps, it is less likely that the Japanese Imperial soldiers set up a trap on most of their rock enclosed treasure deposits. But still, we need to be careful at all times because when it comes to treasure hunting for the hidden Yamashita treasures, nothing can be considered safe.
